Preferred by Nature offers additional services to help your business navigate the carbon footprint management (CFM) landscape.
Whether preparing for verification or a custom evaluation, seeking to enhance knowledge in carbon footprint management, or requiring assistance to complete CFM-related reporting requirements or questionnaires, our support services are available to meet your business needs.
Please note that our support services have been designed to guide and support you in the development of your carbon management plan prior to verification. Please refer to our impartiality policy for more information or contact us about service requests that require additional support.
General training. Using the Preferred by Nature Standard as a foundation, we explain the requirements of our Standard while providing clarity around key principles, concepts and methodologies specific to CFM. The training also integrates exercises to help you identify emission scopes and perform calculations while providing guidance on data collection and offsetting. Additional insights are also available depending on your requirements.
Custom training. If there is a specific area you would like to receive training on, let us know. Examples of custom areas could include providing clarity on available sector or industry guidance for managing GHG emissions, outlining sources of emissions for a specific product, or exploring pathways towards emission reductions.
We understand that clients’ experiences with CFM vary greatly from industry to industry and are dependent on the resources available in-house. Understanding this, our CFM programme aspires to take a more innovative approach towards assurance services as well as our support platform. The following areas represent opportunities for ongoing support as part of your verification or as a standalone service.
Information and guidance. Clarification around our Standard requirements or templates can be provided as you establish your carbon footprint management plan and move towards verification.
Emissions data and calculations. Support is available to help you understand which emission sources to include across your corporate value chain or product life cycle. We can also facilitate the identification and collection of emission factors from secondary data sources.
Feedback. As you develop your carbon footprint plan, we can periodically review your materials, identify areas for improvement, and share information to further your progress.
In the event your business seeks additional support to align with stakeholder requirements, understand potential reduction and neutrality pathways, or evaluate interesting offsetting opportunities, please contact a member of our team.
Reporting and questionnaires. We can provide you with support in understanding climate change related reporting requirements and disclosures.
Reduction and neutrality strategies. Depending on your business, our team can guide you in the development of emissions reduction strategies to help you meet your targets and requirements.
Offset projects. Guidance can be provided to help you evaluate and select carbon offset projects as you move towards carbon neutrality.
